  1. Thanks guys, I really appreciate the info! :wubu:
  2. In a recent discussion with a friend of mine, we were pondering the composition of "Black Sands". I've heard that it may contain some "rare earth" minerals but I don't really have any definitive info on the subject. I also understand there may be a market for some of it's contents. Any one have some info that may reveal some of the mineral make up? :hmmmmm:
  3. Seems like just when a discussion gets deep, "someone" pisses in my beer. Maybe I'll come back later, when things have cooled down. <_<
  4. As I stated before, I really don't give a squat about May 5th. I did find it interesting that the Mexican army stopped the French who were on their way to help the Confecerate army in our Civil War. I can't help but wonder about the outcome if the South had won. I don't feel as the Mexicans had any idea of what was taking place at the time, they were just fighting the French invaders. All that aside, the U.S.A. is in big trouble and I don't see any resolution to our existing predicament. Our gov't is out of control and it seems to me that the majority of our population are just "sheeple", foll
  5. Apart from the NYT, I love stories like this, thanks for sharing.
  6. This should complete the story,..... Cinco de Mayo, the Real Story The Battle of Puebla and its link to American Independence By: John Shepler Many Americans think that the festivities of Cinco de Mayo, held each May 5th, are in celebration of the independence of Mexico. Few know the real connection between the battle of that day and the preservation of American, not Mexican, independence. In May of 1862, President Abraham Lincoln had much to worry about. The United States was on the verge of self-destruction by its own hand. Lincoln had the vast industrial resources of the Northern states at
  7. It was against the French. Here's an excerpt from what I found on the net. Maximilian I, Emperor of Mexico & The French Intervention Introduction The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. It is primarily a regional holiday celebrated in the Mexican state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico, and especially in U.S. cities with a significant Mexican population. It is not, as many people think, Mexico's Independ
  8. Yes Bob, and it all revolves around $$$$. The money and valuables found in one drug lord's house in Mexico alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man, woman, and child in the U.S.A. for 12 years! It is believed there are approximately 27 more of these houses in Mexico alone, not to mention those in other countries who are enriching themselves in the drug trade. These people have so much money they make the Arab oil sheiks look like welfare recipients. Their money can buy the best politicians, the best cops, the best judges, whatever they need. They just throw down stacks
  9. Yup, they do. $$$$$$ = votes = more $$$$$$$! When it comes down to it, it's all about the $$$$! ...and they want all of ours. <_<
  10. C'mon Bob, don't further a non-issue. <_< Ah cain't spel eathur. Sorry Sifter, let's say, tickets for Am-Trac! :lol: All 'board!
  11. I hope you all realize that I am not condoning the "taking up of arms", at this time, but frustrated and desperate people may feel the need to do "their part", since there may not seem to be any alternative. I am so glad that the gov of Az. has spearheaded a movement, brought the issue to light for the entire country, and I'm hoping that those with the power to do so will open their eyes and ears, and get on this long neglected issue. It seems that we are crying loadly to those with deaf ears. There-in lies the real problem. The fuse was lit long ago and it is burning faster and faster all the
  12. Ah, Ha, the school is in lock down. And it's all because a few boys were showing their patriotism to America. Somebody got offended. :wah2: Grow the phoque up people!
